sisters, different. and fascinating how they come out of the same den and so different. john is typical, poised, an achiever, sort after cool guy, probably keeps his emotions close to his chest. where little brother jim, only 15 months apart so these kids competed from toddlerhood on up. but jim is most likely to what, throw a temper tantrum on the side line during the game. one is a risk taker, that would be jim. one is more cautious, that would be john. in fact, we could call this the battle of the birth orders and on top of that, joe flacco, from baltimore, is a first born, and colin kaepernick is the baby. >> so i wonder how that will come into play as the quarterbacks face off on the gridiron? >> well, i think one is more likely it to shoot from the hip and take a risk, that would be kaepernick, but it's going to -- i think this could be one of the greatest super bowls we've seen. i think it's got great elements in it. >> i love that you say that, john, it's true to form because john, when you interview john, it's cool and he doesn't like an interview question he smiles a little bi
